This week starts Banned Books Week Giveaway Hop hosted by I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and I Read Banned Books. What is Banned Books Week and why on Earth should we be hopping during it?
Well, here’s a snippet from last year’s Speak Loudly post: Being an American and an avid reader of all flavors of books, I believe we have the right to certain freedoms including freedom of choice. We have the right to choose what we want to read. We have the right to choose not to read a certain book. We have the right to be vocal about a book–whether to praise it or not.
What we don’t have the right to do is force our beliefs on someone else. That’s what Banned Books Week, officially running from September 24-October 1 of this year, is all about. According to the American Library Association, one of the main sponsors of Banned Books Week, “Banned Books (BBW) is an annual event celebrating the freedom to read and the importance of the First Amendment. Held during the last week of September, Banned Books Week highlights the benefits of free and open access to information while drawing attention to the harms of censorship by spotlighting actual or attempted bannings of books across the United States.”
So, to encourage everyone to read some of those fabulous books that have been banned, I’m offering all my fellow readers the chance to win one of two $15 gift certificates to Amazon.com! Just fill out the form below for a chance to win. (And, yes, it’s open internationally.)
